Otis Wilson
Otis Wilson was born in Brooklyn, NY and became the #1 draft choice for the Chicago Bears in 1980 after graduating from The University of Louisville. Wilson's career with the Bears spanned from 1980 - 1988, during that time he appeared in the Pro-Bowl twice once in 1983-84 season and again in season 1985-1986. Playing starting linebacker, Wilson was a part of the top-ranked and most feared defensive team which held up 11 of 16 opponents to 10 points or less. Which led to a Super Bowl Championship for the Bears in 1985. After a successful career with the Bears for 8 years, Wilson left and played with the L.A. Raiders in 1989. He stayed with L.A. for only 1 year and retired after the 1989 season. After his career he was named to the All-Madden Century Team. In 1990 Wilson launched his career in broadcasting as a sports commentator for ABC affiliate WREX-Channel 13 in Rockford, Illinois. Wilson was able to successfully take his experience as a pro-athlete and translate it to his viewers week after week. Two years later Wilson was given a 1 hour post-game Bears show called "Otis Wilson Sports Profile," where he was able to showcase more of his commenting skills and ideas. During that time he had Michael Jordan, Chris Chelios and other leading athletes in the Chicago area on his show. Wilson has appeared on or worked for ABC, WMAQ, FOX, WBBM, and WGN in Chicago.
